“Little yellow lies” is a gripping story about life and the choices that define it. At the end of the day, do you fight for what you believe in? Or will the pressure make you fold and abandon your values?
In this story, these are the choices that Mike had to face growing up in Brooklyn.
Throughout this deeply personal autobiography, Ming presents his life through the eyes of Mike Lee, just coming home from prison and trying to make a life for himself. The obstacles Mike faces and his handling of them dictates the course of his life as he tries to better himself and find a place in this world.
While trying to get his life together, a series of events leads Mike down a familiar path. The path towards redemption, healing, and growth, is never linear. This content in this book isn’t meant to glorify a man’s past, but to share his mistakes and show how growth is still possible. As Mike deals with consequences of his actions, he finds himself at a crossroads – redemption or recidivism.
